Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

With National Decision Day looming on May 1st, letters have been very much on prospective college students’ minds this month.

College Admission Letters

Is the letter long or short, envelope thin or fat?  Did the dream school say “yes”?  Did the scholarship come through? So much riding on those letters ….

While the decision is important, there are many good colleges out there; there are just as many routes to a successful and satisfying future.

The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. work is the key to success, and hard work can help you accomplish anything. ~ Vince Lombardi

College comes before both success and work … only in the dictionary.  Don’t let those letters limit you. To all those prospective college freshman out there who are feeling that the letters they received this month define their future, for better or for worse, keep in mind the words of the late Bryce Courtenay:

Let me conclude by saying in my experience the glittering prizes in life come more to those who persevere despite setback and disappointment than they do to the exceptionally gifted who, with the confidence of the talents bestowed upon them, often pursue the tasks leading to success with less determination. ~ Bryce Courtenay, The Power of One

  1. My niece in the US, went through this the past year, and I think it was more nerve wracking for my sister 🙂 Love your choice of quotes.


  2. Oh those particular letters can bring such happiness or sadness. If only students realize it is not the end of the world if they don’t get accepted at their school of choice. Great job on this one.
